Removing a wall


Postby Createv » Thu Mar 12, 2009 10:33 am

Hello

I am looking to remove a wall that is constructed using a wood frame then covered with plasterboard both sides.

The wall splits the downstairs kitchen and dining room, I have lifted the floorboard's in the bedroom above and the joists are running parallel with the wall below.

Is it ok to remove I don't think it's a load bearing wall

Any thoughts on this

Thanks/

If its a stud wall as you suggest then its almost certainly not load bearing.

Its Ok to remove a non loadbearing wall.
